      Really love this briefcase.... very stylish. The only thing I wasn't happy about is that it wasn't monogramed as I ordered online. So I'll have to take it to a store to get it done.

              I have had nothing but issues with the strap locking mechanism from the day I got this. Every time I pick this briefcase the straps come out of the side locks. The case either ends up on the floor or around my feet and I have tripped over it numerous times. I have stopped by many Tumi stores and the feeling is "that's how it is made and probably can not repair". Very disappointed in this case.

                I needed a new briefcase for work. I am pretty brutal with my briefcases so needed something that is built well and can hold up over time. Tumi makes a quality product so I visited a local store. This bag looks great. Very professional. Multiple zippered pockets with smaller pockets inside to hold business cards, pens, etc... I just traveled with it for business and ditched my laptop bag and used this instead. I was able to put my 15 inch MacBook Pro along with the charger and some other accessories in and had plenty of extra room when I looked on the website before I purchased it there were comments about the shoulder strap coming loose. I panicked and reconsidered my purchase until I spoke with a Tumi representative on the phone who assured e that they had redesigned the shoulder strap connector. Indeed they have. It hasn't come off once and appears to be locked in securely. I absolutely love this bag and highly recommend it. The only issue is the price - a bit high. But you get what you pay for and I plan to have this bag for many many years.

                Horrible Shoulder Strap, Great Bag

                  • Shoulder Strap Design

                  Comments about Ansonia Zip Top Leather Brief:

                  I work in consulting, and is a very professional bag to bring to meetings and use this daily. Unfortunately the design of the shoulder strap is horrible. When you pick up the shoulder strap it falls out of the holder and you have a bag on the floor and strap in your hand. The strap will not stay on your shoulder, and should just be a better design. Definitely look at other bags, or at least the bags that do not use this shoulder strap design.

                        I've had this for a year now and love everything about it. It has enough room for an MacBook, legal bad and lots of other storage compartments without any added bulk. I am about to drop it off at the Tumi store for a polishing.

                              Poor shoulder strap design. No friction pad on strap. Slides off shoulder. Strap frequently pulls out of clips on bag. One of the shoulder clips broke within first three months.

                              Work in investment banking, and this bag is great for formal client meetings (big enough for laptop / books, without being bulky), as well as casual weekend trips and and my daily commute. Everything is organized, without having too many pockets with specific uses that will go outdated. Good look (wish the zippers were a bit less prominent), and not too heavy.

                                    The handles are not that comfortable. The locking mechanism for the shoulder strap disengages frequently. It's designed to detach by pulling down and turning, which unfortunately is what naturally happens when the bag is simply placed down. It reattaches by pulling up and turning. Very annoying over time that you continuously need to reattach the strap.
